Homepage protection from AOL
My new PC came with this installed but I can't seem to find out what it does. The default home page (in IE) is a hosted AOL page (, IIRC) so I'm not sure if this protects just that page (in which case I don't want it) or if it more generically protects whatever home page I set (in which case I might as well keep it).

I absolutely hate companies that don't tell you what their products do. Or do so in such obvious 'marketing' terms that you know you can't trust what they say.

I got an HP netbook a few months ago and just found the same "Homepage Protection" in my Add\Remove Programs list. I don't want anything AOL on my computer, For the mostpart I really can't stand preinstalled software!

Hopefully it's okay to uninstall?
